I have the same problem.
I had it for a while, than updated my Mobo (MSI) drivers and it worked for a while. It just happened to me now.
I get a message that my account is not recognized by the user profile service.
I then have to use restore. And then MCAFEE realtime is out.
I narrowed it down that the dat is out of date. But somehow i cannot get it updated.
I hpoe MCAFEE reads this!!!
I have exactly the same problem... also IE8 hangs when starting
This problem also stops me from Activating the product, updating the Antivirus files, and the firewall fails.
It seems to be the Mcafee core service "McAfee Services" that fails I think this controls everything else.
McAfee suggested using the removal tool running an microsoft update and reinstalling.. this did not work.
With McAfee uninstalled IE8 works.
Looks Like McAfee have a problem brewing.
OS: Windows 7 64 bit
New laptop so should have few conflicts.

It happens with most antivirus post a system restore, the software loses all of its current updates thereby making its components to be disabled, So, please run McAfee virutal technician from here : http://mvt.mcafee.com and let it fix all found issues, also make sure to post back your session id so that I can check the report and narrow down the issue simultaneously.
Along with the above please have a check ;
Whether there are no other security software running in the machine.
Check and install any available window update.
Please let us know the results and we will proceed further.
